Ode to the Guad

THROUGH WIND AND RAIN

OR STORM AT SEA,

WE TRUST THIS SHIP CALLED GUADALUPE.
 
 

SHE MAY BE OLD

BUT SOLIDLY BUILT,

WITH PRIDE AND GLORY

UP TO THE HILT.
 
 

SHE'S BEEN AROUND

FOR QUITE A WHILE,

HER DEPENDABLE SERVICE

IS ALWAYS IN STYLE.
 
 

HER CAPTAIN AND CREW

MAY VARY AND CHANGE,

BUT HER DECKS AND MACHINERY

WILL ALWAYS REMAIN.
 
 

ON JUNE 19TH A BIRTHDAY

CAME AND PASSED,

MAKES TWENTY-EIGHT NOW,   (1969)

BUT NOT HER LAST.
 
 

MY HEAD'S HELD HIGH

I'M SALUTING THEE.

MAY TROUBLE BE SMALL,

HAVE A FOLLOWING SEA.

 (Unknown author - but I think one of the people in '69)
